The benefits of private tuition

The benefits of private tuition

One of the most stressful times for children can be education and learning. Factors such as distractions from school, bullying or learning methods that just aren’t tailored to the child can all play a part. However, on the other hand, one of the most stressful times for parents is also ensuring that your child gets the best education possible.

Whether the difficulties are coming from the child or you as a parent, it’s refreshing to know that there are many options available to provide your child with extra support and you with peace of mind. One of the best ways to do this is through private tuition. More than a quarter of secondary school pupils in the UK received private tuition in 2019, many across the USA are considering it for their child, and with numerous benefits, it’s unsurprising.

Five Benefits of Private Tuition

One-on-one engagement

According to the UK Department of Education, classes can contain up to 30 pupils, meaning a teacher’s attention must be divided between each class member. As a result, this means less one-on-one engagement and attention for your child, which is crucial to maximise their learning potential. This is where private tutoring can deliver.

Tailored learning

No two children are the same, with all children learning differently. Some prefer more visual cues whilst others may adopt a more auditory approach to learning. On top of this, children learn at different paces. In a traditional classroom setting, the learning approach is generalised across the board, with a set curriculum to follow each week. This means regardless of whether your child is struggling on a certain topic and needs more time, the teacher will move on to keep in sync with the national curriculum.

With private tutoring, learning can be tailored to your child’s needs, whether more time needs to be spent on a certain topic, or a teaching style adapted to help enhance your child’s engagement.

Distraction free learning

A classroom that is full of up to 30 students can be a distracting place for your child, pulling their attention away from the task at hand. Whether it’s gadgets in school or other children being a nuisance and pulling your child’s attention away from the focus of the lesson, these are all external factors that you as a parent have no control over.

Private tuition allows your child to be taught in an environment that your child is comfortable with, that you as a parent control, giving you peace of mind that your child’s focus will be on their learning.

Boosting confidence

As private tuition is tailored to your child through one-to-one, personalised lessons, tutors can develop a good environment for learning. This environment for learning, combined with the ability for tutors to fill in any gaps of knowledge, boosts skills and grades. The added benefit of this is building your child’s confidence and self esteem through the gratification of success. This boost in confidence can then have a positive impact on your child in and outside of an educational setting.

Peace of mind for you!

As a parent, you want to ensure that your child has the best education possible to give them the best chance at life. Tailored learning in a safe environment that can be weaved in and around your busy lifestyle, gives you as a parent the peace of mind that your child’s learning will always be taken care of.
